Lost Restaurants of Baltimore

Baltimore’s unforgettable dining scene of the past is re-visited in thirty-five now shuttered restaurants that made their mark on Baltimore.

Simple details like Haussner’s artwork, Coffey salad at the Pimlico Hotel, finger bowls at Hutzler’s Colonial Tea Room, and the bell outside the door at Martick’s Restaurant Francais made Baltimore’s dining scene so unforgettable. Explore the stories behind thirty-five shuttered restaurants that Baltimoreans once loved. The meals, the crowds, the owners and the spaces made these places hot spots.

Suzanne Loudermilk and Kit Waskom Pollard share behind-the-scenes tales of what made them tick, why they closed their doors and how they helped make Baltimore a culinary destination.

Suzanne Loudermilk is a freelance writer and former reporter for the Baltimore Sun and editor and at Baltimore magazine as the food and travel editor. She is also an adjunct professor at Towson University.

Kit Waskom Pollard is a freelance writer and research analyst who has written about food and restaurants for numerous local publications, including the Baltimore Sun and Baltimore magazine. Kit also writes restaurant reviews and a restaurant events column for the Baltimore Fishbowl website.
